What is it?
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day is one fun day to celebrate GIS with everyone. It is an opportunity to discover and understand the benefits of GIS and showcase its uses. GIS Day is a way to build and nurture a GIS community, spreading their passion for GIS to users and non-users alike.
This event will focus on applications of GIS and illustrate use cases for humanitarian assistance, academic research and government decision-making, specifically marine spatial planning in Northern Ireland. The event will close with a showcase of the Northern Ireland Marine Mapviewer, currently in the final stages of development, which brings together disparate spatial datasets relating to NI's marine environment.
Where is it?
The event will take place at the School of Natural and Built Environment, Elmwood Avenue.
